Portland goth-metal outfit Idle Hands are now Unto Others, and they’ve signed with Roadrunner Records. Today they’ve shared a new single, “When Will Gods Work Be Done,” a new, gloomy ripper that marks their first official release with the veteran metal label. Hear it below.
In a Decibel interview, vocalist/guitarist Gabriel Franco says, “Our last full length came out over two years ago and much has changed, including the band and I, our name, etc… so I consider this a reintroduction of ‘us’ to those who connected with our music in the past, as well as a debut for the many who haven’t. We did our best, and that’s all we can do. So out of the frying pan, and into the fire, I think we have all been frying long enough.”
The band is also touring in Europe with Behemoth, Carcass and Arch Enemy. Check out those dates below.
Idle Hands’ last album was 2019’s MANA.
